The resurgence of Manchester United continued with a third consecutive win as they beat Leicester City 1-0 at King Power Stadium.
Jadon Sancho got the decisive goal, scoring in the 23rd minute, rounding Danny Ward from Marcus Rashford’s through-ball to score.
Leicester were seeking a first win of the season but struggled to trouble United. The closest they came was through James Maddison’s free-kick that was saved by David De Gea.
It is now one point from five matches for Brendan Rodgers’ side, who remain bottom and will hope for a change of fortunes on Sunday at Brighton & Hove Albion.
The win sends Man United to fifth and they will aim to continue their run and be the first side to take points off Arsenal this season when they face each other this Sunday at Old Trafford.
Meanwhile, Nigeria’s Wilfred Ndidi was restored to the starting line up for his 63rd start in 170 Premier League appearances. It was also his 11th game against Manchester United.
Ndidi’s compatriot at the club, Kelechi Iheanacho was subbed on for his fourth of the season and 103rd in 172 appearances.
